General Note
"The no-digging, no-tilling, no-stooping approach to growing vegetables and herbs"--Cover.
Description
Does kneeling on the ground to tend a garden send you scrambling for aspirin? Do you dread the thought of bending and crouching to plant seeds and pull weeds? Does the idea of growing your own vegetables appeal to you but the hassle of digging, plowing, planting, weeding, and watering turn you off?
Description
Stand Up and Garden shows how everyone can garden, including those with physical limitations like arthritis or location limitations like apartments without yards. Food safety is also a big issue these days, as is the high cost of healthy foods ... But imagine harvesting radishes, carrots, and strawberries in the spring; herbs, tomatoes, and cucumbers all through the summer; beets, spinach, and even potatoes in autumn-all without the back-breaking pain of bending and digging! Master Gardener Mary Moss-Sprague has improved upon traditional gardening by developing ways to grow plants that produce large amounts of food-enough to eat fresh and to can and preserve-in small vertical spaces. Learn how to use containers, trellises, raised beds, and straw bales to decrease weed growth and bring plants up to a more comfortable height for tending.
Description
New gardeners will benefit from the basic planting and growing information offered here for a wide range of vegetables and herbs. Experienced growers will find invaluable space- and energy-saving ideas. In addition to vertical gardening techniques you'll find tips on overwintering plants and details on sustainable and eco-friendly gardening practices. Step-by-step illustrations and supply lists help make the projects detailed here accessible to everyone, regardless of ability or skill. If you never thought you could plant your own garden and harvest your own crops, think again! Book jacket.
